MANILA, Philippines – Television host Kim Jones admitted she is ready to face a life of intrigues as long as she has her boyfriend, actor Jericho Rosales, by her side.

Jones granted a rare interview to “The Buzz” which was aired on Sunday. Jones said she supports Rosales’ career even if it means that their relationship would at times be subjected to controversies because he is in showbiz.

“It’s fine. We are both really supportive of each other’s careers, of each other’s job, so it’s very positive,” she said.

Jones and Rosales have been together for more than a year now such that she already met Rosales’ family.

She said she loves spending time with them. “I love his family. Opo na-meet ko na sila lahat. They’re gorgeous. I look forward to seeing them and we get along very well,” she said.

Asked if they are already talking about marriage, Jones said: “We are very happy and we hope for the best. We are very happy. No ring yet but we are hoping for the best. He’s very, very special, super mabait siya, very giving, loyal and funny.”

It was reported last month that the celebrity couple went to Australia so that the actor could meet the TV host's family.

In a separate interview, Rosales was asked if he already asked for Jones’ hand in marriage when he met her mom.

“Kausap ko 'yung mommy niya tapos tinanong ako ng mommy niya sabi, ‘Echo ano bang plano niyo?’ In my head was magpakasal. Sabi ko, ‘Tita ano po, magpakasal po.’ Tapos [na-speechless] ang mommy niya. Hindi pa iyon iyon. 'Yung trip na iyon was to get to know her family,” he shared.

While there won’t be any wedding bells soon, Rosales said Jones is the most special girl in his life right now.

“Ito ang mga sinasabi ko na mga moments na siguro [kung papakasalan ko na siya], sasabihin ko sa kanya straight. Pero ang masasabi ko ngayon, wala na akong ibang iniisip na babae kundi siya lang,” he said.
